Something NEW is coming to Police Credit Union... introducing Fast Payments.
Get ready for faster, simpler, smarter payments with Fast Payments at Police Credit Union…
What is Fast Payments?
Fast Payments is part of the New Payments Platform (NPP), which is an exciting industry-wide initiative that will provide Australian consumers, businesses and government with a faster, simpler and smarter way to securely send and receive payments.
Fast Payments will be available early in 2018 as participating financial institutions start to roll out services to their customers. At launch, all Police Credit Union Members will be able to make and receive faster payments between accounts held at participating financial institutions.
There are 4 key features of Fast Payments:
You’ll be able to send and receive payments in near real-time – the funds you send, will reach your recipient’s account within minutes, even seconds. No more waiting hours or days for funds to arrive. Osko by BPAYTM is the service that enables these faster payments and once Fast Payments commence, you will start to see the Osko® logo when you transact with Online Banking.
2. Available 24/7
Make payments anytime with access at your fingertips using our Police Credit Union Banking App and Online Banking, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You don’t have to worry about making payments within regular business hours or waiting until the next business day to receive your funds.
3. Data Enriched
Send and receive more detailed descriptions with remittance information for payments with up to 280 characters available – so you will know exactly what the payment was for.
4. Simple Addressing
Sending payments is easy using PayID – a system that enables you to send and receive payments using an easy-to-remember identifier like a mobile phone number, email address or ABN for a business linked to your account. Although paying someone using a mobile phone number or email address is easy you can still pay someone using a BSB and Account number.
Near Real-time payments with Osko by BPAY
Osko by BPAY will be the new way to pay through Fast Payments. Any payments you make using Online Banking or our Police Credit Union Banking App, will automatically transfer in near real-time – as long as your recipient banks with a participating financial institution. You will be able to make and receive payments faster with funds available within minutes, even seconds. Whether you’re paying a tradesman, splitting a bill or giving money to a family member for something urgent – the money will be there in minutes – across different financial institutions, 24/7.
Register a PayID
Once Fast Payments is launched, you can register a unique PayID via Online Banking. This PayID will allow you to use your mobile phone number or email address as an identifier to be paid. If you are paying someone who has their own unique PayID, you will be able to transfer money to them using the same easy identifiers such as a mobile phone number or email address.
Safe and secure with PayID
You can relax in the knowledge that your money is safe and secure with PayID. The PayID system has been developed with security in mind and includes the following features:
- PayID is monitored 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
- PayID is certified to the highest data security capabilities as well as the existing high security standards met by all financial institutions including Police Credit Union. Police Credit Union also offers Guardian Fraud Protection Service which is a comprehensive suite of services to keep your transactions safe and secure.
- Your PayID can only be used by someone to pay you – it cannot be used by them to take money from your account.
- Once created, you can share your PayID when someone needs to pay you, so you can keep your account details such as BSB and Account Number private. Being paid by using a BSB or Account Number will still remain an option.
- When making a payment using a PayID, you will have extra peace-of-mind knowing exactly who will be receiving your transfer as the name of the person or business linked to the PayID will appear before finalising your payment.
